>> good morning. we continue with a live look at ocean city. a look at those waves. a few people brave enough to attempt them right now. there's also a couple people on the board walk. notice how it's still a bit wet. looks like most of the rain showers are starting to taper down. they still have clouds sitting over the coast. we'll talk about the waves in a moment. let's show you hd doppler to show the rain is indeed moving off the coast. that's what's left of our severe weather yesterday. cold front moving off shore. in its place, beautiful weather rolling in? we're gonna expect the quiet weather to last for some time. you want to talk about the tropics real quick because this does play a role in the weather, at least near ocean city.
9:12am
look at tropical storm leslie as it bears to the north. if you had to get a tropical system, that's the better side to be on. still concerns there with high surf and the strong winds. leslie is such a large storm about 400 miles across. it's been sitting in place for several days. that means it's basically just been churning up the water. it continues to push water towards the coast. for that reason, we do have concerns of rip currents and high surf along the eastern seaboard including ocean city as leslie continues to move up to the north. the biggest impact will be to bermuda, as they get close by, and leslie continues to track up to the north. looks like rip currents will continue to be a concern in ocean city throughout the rest of the week. then hurricane michael. winds putting it at a category two. it's expected to decrease in strength through the next couple of days and no impact to land. we call that a fish storm. looking back to our area.
9:13am
lot of clouds sitting along the coast. everyone else enjoying a lot of sunshine. there may be a few more clouds in the mountains today. there's instability left over in the upper atmosphere. everyone else impacted by this high pressure system at the surface. that brings very quiet nice weather. this is a case for the upcoming week. you can see here. not a lot of clouds associated with it. we're not expecting any storms with it. it's going to reinforce that cool air. 41. this is very fall-like air moving into the east. currently 67 at bwi thurgood marshall. 59 degrees in hancock. for this afternoon, pleasant day w the sunshine and dryer conditions. you're looking for a high around 79 in baltimore. ocean city 78 with clearing skies. it's the mountains that could still see a couple showers. their high temperature at 68. tonight is going to be a chilly one. we are down to about 59 this
9:14am
morning. could get a couple degrees cooler tonight. mostly clear skies. that's going to lead us into a spectacular seven-day forecast. that high pressure system continues throughout the upcoming week. we get the reinforcing cold chop tuesday. 77 for the high temperature. it's been a while since we saw temperatures that cool. >> before the severe storms rolled in yesterday boats took part in a dragon boat race. this event takes place every two years. teams compete to raise fund force catholic charities. baltimore city health commissioner is standing by. she's today's q and a guest. putting the fun back into learning for your little one. we have the latest toys to start off the school year. but first here's a look at some events going on around town today. çcp!
9:15am
9:16am
9:17am
>> welcome back. time is 9:17. 69 degreens tv hill. the big three stocks closed
9:18am
slightly higher friday. dow closed about 13000. nasdaq was all up as was the s&p 500. the numbers came following news that the labor market is losing momentum. the economy added just 96,000 jobs in august, down from 141,000 in july according to the labor department. unemployment rate, however, dropped to 8.1% from 8.3% in july, but that's because nearly 370,000 unemployed people stopped looking for work and weren't included in the survey. that brings us to our financial analyst, jonathan murray. we're talking about where to find income in a zero interest rate world. so we appreciate you being here. >> sure. good to be back. >> let's start with the stock market. >> stock market's been great, hasn't it? the s&p index is up 14% year to date, which is pretty surprising for most people. big part of that is apple stock which represents a big component of the s&p and the nasdaq. that's why the dow isn't up
9:19am
quite as much. dow's only up about 7% or 8%. >> we all want to talk about retirement. this 0% interest rate world, how to find income. >> it's such a big challenge for investors who are in the retirement red zone which is that area about five years prior to retirement, where you have to start to gear your portfolio up for income and replacing that income that you've lost. and the big challenge right now, as we know, is that interest rates are nonexistent. cd's right now are paying about .05% short term cd's, so where do people go for income? my concern is that they're stretching out too far, taking too much risk in search of income and that worries me a little bit. >> so let's talk about some of the specific steps that people need to take. starting with diversifying your bond portfolio. >> that's really important, because a lot of folks think, okay, bonds are safe, so they just buy the highest yielding bond. that's not necessarily the case. if interest rates should start
9:20am
to go up, the way they did, say, in 1994, your bonds can lose up to 20% of the value. so, be very careful art making sure that you don't just have really long-term bonds. >> ootips is an acronym for wha? >> treasury inflated professional security. >> that's what i was thinking. >> tips and floating rate bonds are designed to do better in a rising interest rate environment. so if you think interest rates ultimately are going to go back up, which i do, then you need to make sure your bond portfolio needs to include tips and floating rate notes which will do better in a rising market. >> own blue chips and dividend stocks. >> this is my favorite. ravens are playing tomorrow night. my favorite is the football analogy, if your total return is 7% on your portfolio and you can get a dividend paying 3.5%, that's great field position. you're starting on your 50 yard
9:21am
line. you're halfway to your goal already. >> i like that. >> isn't that great? i came up with that myself. >> very good job. >> thank you. so make sure that your portfolio has a lot of dividends in it. >> sounds good. great advice. we appreciate you being here, as always. if you'd like more information call jonathan 410-771-3270 or e-mail him on the screen there. i think you saw it just a moment ago. there it is. stay with us. coming up next, 11 news. john, karie and your sunday gardener. >> there are mums and mums. >> yeah. we have -- any time you want to get started for

9:25am
eight weeks. if you need orioles orange it's here or if you need ravens purple, it's here. >> two types of mums, right? >> there are two types. these are garden mums. and these you usually find in garden centers this time of year. they are outside. there are florist mums which you may find inside. >> get a green house. that's what goes in a flower arraignment generally speaking. they won't make it through the winter outside. >> no. and, to be honest with you, these won't either unless they are planted in the ground pretty soon. >> soon soon soon. get them in the ground to get them established. >> get the roots to spread out. by the time winter sets in, they're raring to go. the other thing is, when you do plant them, these will bloom for six to eight week, then look a little tired. put them in a place where you don't mind them looking a little tired. you don't want to cut them back until spring. >> you don't want that. >> you just want to let them go. you want to continue to water them, as long as they're growing, even if they're not
9:26am
blooming. >> and then, just to get them to flower. look at this. look at the size of this thing. is it more than one plant here? >> there are four in this. these other ones, there's just one. >> we teach you how to cheat. that's the key to getting them to bloom now, is the pruning or the trimming of them. >> right. we wanted these in late may, early june. we pinched them back once or twice to give them this nice tight growth. >> the key times for that? >> if you're going to have one of these in your garden, st. patrick's day, mother's day, fourth of july. >> trim them. give them a hair cut at those time, the flowers will come out in time for fall. >> take them back pretty hard. if they're about eight inches, take them down to maybe three or four inches. >> you're almost treeding them as a shrud. >> right. mums are kind of more familiar with any of the rest of them. if you cut them back, you'll love them. >> the pruning scheme, too, also produces a nice dense plant. it doesn't get all wilty.
9:27am

9:34am
an on going outbreak in the country of whooping cough. >> there are programs that can come to the hel department in baltimore city if they can't get it through their pediatrician? >> absolutely. absolutely. we all recommend go to their pediatrician first. but if it's more convenient they can call 311 for the clinic nearest them and we will immunize them free of charge. >> excellent. that's good to know. one of the more pressing issues in this city continues to be access to healthy foods. we would get kids on the right path for healthy living and lifestyle. what are some of the new programs that you have in place to help families with that? >> there are a lot of great things going on in baltimore in terms of food access. one of the programs that we have are virtual supermarket program is nationally recognized as an innovative program that helps increase access for individuals who may be living in what we call food deserts. so it takes more than a certain amount of time to walk to their
9:35am
nearest supermarket. that program we've had in place for a little over two years. recently, we expanded it to senior high rise buildings. we've expanded to buildings where there's a large number of disabled persons to make it easier for them to access fresh fruits and vegetables. so we're really excited because it's helping set the mark in terms of other cities trying to emulate what we're doing. it's a national demonstration project. >> if you have a senior who's not in one of those buildings but they are a resident of the city and you get them set up for some sort of delivery service. >> right now it's only in selected high rise buildings for seniors. but we are looking to partner with senior centers so that they can utilize those centers for food delivery as well. it's a great partnership between the health department, the planning department and santonio
9:36am
supermarket. >> they just give you a call about that? >> absolutely. >> you worked in the spring trying to cut down on the number of liquor stores in certain neighborhoods. what is the latest with that? >> so, this effort is part of transform baltimore, which is a planning department updating the city's zoning code. and so, in october, there will be an introduction of the new zoning code. there will be opportunities for citizens to comment on recommendations for a bunch of recommendations within the zoning code updates, but specifically regarding the reduction of alcohol outlet density. and so we encourage folks to check out the baltimore city.gov website when the hearings are going to happen and to provide public testimony. if we know that increased intensity of alcohol outlet is increased with violent crime in
9:37am
community. and so this is a part of overall city-wide effort to reduce those types of issues in the city and to help the city grow and grow in a healthy way. >> since you've mentioned that, the first week of school we saw in baltimore county an awful situation with the shooting. what are some of the things that the health department is doing to try to help families and kids with the violent situation? >> so, we work very closely with the school system. we work very closely with community partners on a number of different measures. we have actually an office of youth violence prevention in the health department. there are a number of activities including our safe streets program. we also have an initiative in middle schools where we encourage students and families on learning about safe dating. and so there's a whole range of violence reduction activities that we're involved in. >> that's another place they can go to baltimore city health
